Book Review: Jim Ozy and the Perils of Algebra by Nathan Pratyksh Khanna

About the Book A writer travels to a faraway land to meet his hero. The journey takes him on a trail of suspense and adventure, across uncertain terrains. When the writer finally meets Jim, the subject of his proposed book, he is amazed in many ways, for Jim's tale is no ordinary one. It is closely intertwined with many complex situations and incredible characters, both good and evil. Within the larger tale unfolds many a story--stories of a mysterious cult, a serious combat for restitution of order and an eventual fortuitous disclosure. In a resplendent land that has seen no summer heat, where darkness lurks here and there, something strange has been fomenting for long. Will someone rise to the occasion to safeguard his homeland, even if it means the end of his life?

“I am a free man and I know I will live forever. It is likely that my mortal body gives up, but I will always be remembered in the hymns of mountaineers. I will not die an unpretentious man. My tales w…
